Memento Mori Expansion Packs - Everything you need to know
Posted on December 02 2020
If you've been on my Instagram feed lately, you may have seen I briefly announced something called Memento Mori Expansion Packs.
Here is an in-depth rundown of everything you need to know.
WHAT ARE EXPANSION PACKS?
These expansion packs will contain approximately 20-40 cards, and will have a theme to them. They are to be used with your main Memento Mori Oracle Deck.
ISN'T THAT JUST LIKE ORACLE OF ODDITIES?
No. Oracle of Oddities is three small sets that you sort of “had to purchase” to create a big enough deck. Memento Mori Oracle deck is the main 85 card deck, and these are totally optional additions.
IS ANYTHING LIMITED EDITION?
No. I have no plans to retire any components of the deck. Memento Mori will continue to be sold year round, with the occasional pre-order when it's out of stock.
Expansion packs however, will only be available two or three times per year. They will only be available for purchase via pre-order during a specific time frame, and there will be no extras. This means, if you don't place your order during the pre-order period, you will have to wait for the next round.
As much as I wish I had unlimited space to store decks, I work out of my small apartment.
WHEN WILL THESE BE AVAILABLE?
The first round of expansion packs will be available for sale January 26th, 2021. I wanted to give you lots of time to prepare, and not add extra stress to the holiday season.
HOW MUCH WILL THEY COST?
Price depends on how many cards are in each pack, but they will likely be between $40 and $50 CAD. This is subject to change.
Patreons subscribers at the time of purchase get 10% off and a bonus card in each deck!
WHAT ARE THE THEMES?
General Expansion Pack:
The general expansion pack is a mixed deck of practical tools, witchcraft, animal symbolism and death themed items, just like the main deck.
It is numbered from 86 onwards and will include a meanings booklet.
It will contain approximately 30 cards.
Ancestors & Advisors Expansion Pack:
The Ancestor & Advisors pack contains a multitude of significator cards and different people to add more layers readings.
As you know, Memento Mori Oracle has Man, Woman and Child cards, but I wanted to provide you with more relatives and pronoun options.
Some examples include: grandmother, son, friend, enemy, spouse or partner, guide, she, he, they, me and so on.
It will contain approximately 35 cards.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER EXPANSIONS?
Future expansion packs in the works are: Timing and Victorian Vampire Hunter.
I expect those to be available Spring or Summer 2021.
I CAN ONLY AFFORD ONE, WHICH DO YOU RECOMMEND?
Choose what speaks to you. There are benefits to both decks, and it depends on what you're looking for. If you do a lot of readings for others, you may find Ancestors & Advisors more practical.
If you love the eclectic nature of Memento Mori Oracle, the General pack may be more up your alley.
